British pet-friendly holidays in self-catering accommodation in rural areas

There are a large and growing number of rural cottages in Britain that are pet-friendly with websites having ‘pet-friendly’ as a feature when searching for a cottage. Many only allow one or two dogs that are well behaved and have to stay on the ground floor but this is only to make sure the cottages are well looked after. There are country cottages that accept a large number of dogs per cottage but these are few and far between. One of two dogs is the usual maximum limit per accommodation.

Rural pet-friendly cottages are the perfect get away for you and your dog, let your dog explore new territories and be at peace whilst walking your dog. Most dogs aren’t just a pet but part of the family so bringing the dog wouldn’t even be a question. Many places are the perfect location for dog walking amongst the mountains and countryside including Cornwall, Cumbria and Devon. And the cottages that are in these locations don’t have any problems with bringing a dog with you but always make sure to double check before booking.

Let your dog join in on the fun, whether you’re exploring the near by town, walking in the countryside or swimming in the lake. Your dog can be right beside you throughout and once you get back to your rural cottage to relax on the evening, your dog can do just the same! Just make sure to bring their own food otherwise they will be after your food when you have a BBQ!
